April 18, 2018|Behavioral Medicine

We are pleased to announce that Biofeedback is now available in both our Newton-Wellesley office. To inquire about availability and appointments, please complete our quick and easy Online Intake Form or call us at (617) 259-1895.

Biofeedback is a non-invasive process that helps you and your clinician better understand how stress, emotions that are difficult to manage, and situational factors impact your body. These bodily changes are measured via sensors and are displayed on a computer monitor that both you and your clinician can see. It provides immediate feedback regarding the level of physical reactivity (such as your heart rate or muscle tension) to stress. Learning to be aware of and to manage these reactions can help you to improve your health and resilience to stress.

Biofeedback may helpful for those experiencing:

  • Heart disease
  • Sleep problems
  • Fatigue
  • Pain Conditions
  • Digestive problems
  • Depression & anxiety
  • Overeating & obesity
  • Reproductive problems
  • Memory & concentration problems

Each training session typically lasts 45 – 60 minutes. The total number of biofeedback sessions varies depending on the specific concerns of the client. Although you may begin to experience benefits early on, typically 8 to 10 sessions of biofeedback training are required. In addition, practicing the techniques at home and in your daily life will facilitate learning and symptom reduction.
